Notes, topics or text 

On BR's Australian lecture tour in 1950.

Ramsay asks Caiger if BR could give fewer newspaper interviews as BR's views are already appearing in the press and he worries that people will only read what he has said in the lectures, instead of people actually going to attend one or more of his lectures.

"I suppose you have heard that the Milne Lecture went off more than satisfactorily. There was a large crowd and the fact that General Chapman couldn't even find a seat at 5 to 8 and had to go home again was a little unfortunate, but at least it was typical of the number we had present. The Prime Minister was really splendid and I feel that the whole thing was a credit to the Institute."
